I took recycling down to the rubbish room which is partly flooded after the heavy rain today… so to stop my slippers getting wet I tried taking big strides. Nope can’t do that anymore. I tried going on tippy toes. Nope can’t do that anymore.
So I came up with the ingenious plan…
I used bits of cardboard to make stepping-stones to the skip. Went across with my walker, dumped my recycling in the skip & used stepping-stones to get back… feeling very clever & rather pleased with myself.
Then I thought I can’t really leave all that soggy cardboard on the floor so I went across again picking up stepping-stones & putting them on walker & dumped them in skip. Then I had to walk back through the water without stepping-stones…
Ended up with very wet slippers & walker.
Lesson learnt? Don’t bother doing your recycling when the rubbish room is flooded.
